Using a Rule-Based Service Bus for Controlling Dataflows in Patient Centric Hospital Information Systems


One of the biggest challenges when introducing a Hospital Information System (HIS) is the integration of the various clinical and administrative subsystems. We created a proto- type HIS to evaluate the feasibility of creating an integration framework with standard open source components to over- come this challenge. The Java implementation is based on JBoss ESB and JBoss Drools. The implementation with the exemplary integration of an open source ERP (Openbravo) and open source PACS (DCM4CHEE) shows that this ap- proach is feasible and results in a highly maintainable core architecture.
